Warning to all Georgia parents: another child seat has been recalled. This time it is the Bumbo baby seat, made by Bumbo International, a Texas company.
You can find out more at bumbosafety.com, but after looking at that site, it seems the corporation, like many in its shoes, is attempting to blame the parents for the lack of safety of the very product it manufactured. So many corporations, when they are caught red-handed manufacturing a dangerous product, point a finger at their own customers, rather than accepting responsibility for placing a defective, dangerous product on the market. This is the face of the fact that the Consumer Product Safety Commission says it has received 28 reports of children falling out of the seats, which prompted the recall.
Georgia parents can retrieve newly written instructions for use of the seat at bumbosafety.com. When you read them, it will probably make you mad that the corporation is blaming you, the parent. If you have such a seat at home, you might reconsider using it any further based upon the CPSC recall. Perhaps a better source for learning more about this product recall and others, is cpsc.gove, the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s own website. I think it is a good idea to check that site periodically for safety information on all sorts of products.
